I still think about you, rescued Chibok girl, Amina writes Boko Haram 'husband'

In what may qualify as undying love, rescued Chibok girl, Amina Ali, has sent a message to her Boko Haram ‘husband’ Mohammed Hayatu, saying she still thinks of him.

Ali stated this in an exclusive interview conducted by the Thomas Reuters Foundation, adding that she is not happy that she was separated from Hayatu.

It would be recalled that the 21-year-old was rescued by the Army alongside Hayatu and her four month old baby around Damboa in Borno State after two years in captivity.

She has since been kept in a discreet house in Abuja in what the government said is a ‘restoration process’.

However, Ali, who granted her first interview to the foundation, said she wants to go home.

“I just want to go home – I don’t know about school.

“I will decide about school when I get back, but I have no idea when I will be going home”, she said.

Her interview comes after the Boko Haram insurgent group released their latest video showing some of the abducted girls.

Though she did not know of the video as at the time of the interview, Ali said her abductors told them that everyone was looking for them.

Talking about the other girls who are still in captivity, Ali said: “I think about them a lot – I would tell them to be hopeful and prayerful. In the same way God rescued me, he will also rescue them.

Speaking of the father of her baby, she said: “I want him to know that I am still thinking about him.
“Just because we got separated, that does not mean that I don’t think about him.”
